i Want to sculpt Syw russian infantry in 25 mm-marching pse(with green coat and in summer uniform)
I search some info about Russian Army but i have more doubt:
the Correct uniforms in 1759(if someone have drawns) and if soldiers wear only cartridge box or other bags(and waterbottle?).
What are your preferences and those of collectors?

Examples of the last sculpted Russians advancing-attack poses set,what do you think? suggestion?

Really nice, I prefer March pose musket upright as it is easier to line the men up for wargaming, also all men looking directly ahead.

yes matt,
The masters in the photos are sculpted for the set of first line marching-attack(sculpted before).
Now I'm sculpting marching poses with musket upright (for the other line).
my problem is for the bag and uniforms: if russian have only cartridge bag or other bags similar to prussians

All troops had a cartridge pouch; as I recall the small waistband cartridge – worn on the belly – was only worn by grenadiers. As to the coast, depends on the time of the year; in the summer Russian infantry often only wore the waistcoat

The forward leg should provide the opposite shoulder forward.

Russian musketeers in summer uniforms are in progress
Now I work for the soldiers on the march
The Grenadiers have front/belly cartridge and also a different "Simbol" of cartdridge box on the bag

these troops are with only cartridge box or with other bags(bags for food on the left)?
I saw miniatures in the 28mm(i think) with these bags,What do you think?

Nice looking figures, but I do like the figures to be "in step".

On the marching poses other modify will be made for other variants(For example with the right hand in the middle of the rifle held with the left) ,please tell me if you have a variation you prefer if you want
